THE LAW OFFICE
Established in 2010, the FIGUEIREDO & VELLOSO Law Office began by specializing in criminal law, counting on the experience of lawyer Ticiano Figueiredo. This direction was reinforced in 2015 with the arrival of partner Pedro Ivo Velloso, also a criminal lawyer, who made the rapid consolidation of the Law Office in the national scene possible. As a result of this evolution, the need arose to expand the field of practice to the civil sphere, which occurred in 2017 with the arrival of a new partner, civil lawyer Diego Campos.
The FIGUEIREDO & VELLOSO Law Office has a strong commitment to its clients, guided by responsible, ethical and confidential work. Our lawyers seek modern and innovative solutions that foster the improvement of legal institutions and the Judiciary system.
With headquarters in Brasília, near the Praça dos Três Poderes (the seat of government), the Law Office is active throughout Brazil, providing the best possible resources for the defense of its clients. The team of partners and collaborators is highly qualified in their specialized areas and endeavor to support all the needs of the clients they defend. In addition, they are qualified to offer services in English, French and Spanish.
